Select from consultancy, project management and fully hosted VR entertainment services.
Here at VR-Centre we provide fully hosted VR entertainment for events combined with inhouse curated/created content. We take guests on totally unique journeys, providing them with experiences they'll never forget.
Our live VR experiences are delivered in multiple formats, from the latest generation mobile headsets, through to full body standing/moving experiences and force feedback driving systems.
From single booth demonstrations, through to multi-system VRcade environments, our team can scale virtual entertainment environments to fit your event size and budget.
VR content delivery needs to be reliable and constant, with high frame rates and graphical quality that best sells experiences, maximising end user enjoyment. As such our live solutions utilise our own fleet of high end virtual reality systems, based on class-leading Nvidia GPU’s.
Our headset and controller choice has been the HTC-Vive since launch, as they provide the reliability, visual fidelity and maximum full body movement our experiences require. We have recently introduced wireless connectivity for our headsets too, giving even more freedom.
In addition to the VR systems, we also provide event focused features like foam safety flooring, crowd control with tensa barriers, powerful audio systems, full LED mood lighting, 4D effects like wind & haptic feedback vests, plus in-house AV for spectator screens up to 100” in size.

Hosted throughout 2017 and into 2018, the events have drawn online interest and social media impressions.
The BFI - VR-Centre and the British Film Institute worked together in May of 2017 to host a unique private VR event, designed to introduce over 150 industry figures to the concept of VR entertainment. Hosted at the BFI's Southbank venue, in the iconic Blue Room exhibition hall, VR-Centre provided a total of 6 full body HTC Vive systems, within a highly themed 'Tron' styled VRcade, which included body balancing, traditional shooting and VR car racing setups. A team of 5 trained VR hosts installed and setup the space within 5 hours and ran the four hour event to capacity. A total of 6 high power projectors allowed spectators to enjoy the realtime view of VR users around the room, along with mixed audio. The space was fully risk assessed, with safety flooring, tensa barriers and spectator cordons ensuring a safe event space for all. A broad range of content was enjoyed and guest reviews were glowing throughout."It was a really professional event and the guests evidently loved every second of it. The VR-Centre team ran it all flawlessly"
Ampersand Hotel - When a discerning client requested a fully fledged 'VR arcade' for a significant birthday, VR-Centre were happy to plan, project manage and provision the full event. Across an eight hundred square foot space our team installed four interconnected VR play systems. Uniquely, this client asked for local-multiplayer between VR players, a specific request and one our team were able to provide for. Up to four players were able to fend off 'zombies' within the same virtual environment, with their bodies and actions tracked for each other to see."VR-Centre put on an incredible event for our guests, the technology worked flawlessly and it felt like we had four 'holodecks' at the party. We will be booking them again"
